After World Boxing Council (WBC) heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (44-2, 40 KO’s) struggled for twelve rounds against challenger Dereck Chisora (15-3-9 KO’s on February 18, many boxing fans are ready to take another look at Tyson Fury (17-0, 12 KO’s). Fury defeated “Del-Boy” convincingly when they fought last July.

Fury proved in his fight with Chisora that he has a fighter’s heart and that he could stand up to his punches without wilting. Fury also showed that despite his being just twenty three years old, he has some ring smarts.

In all fairness “Dr. Ironfist” should not be measured by his performance against Chisora as some boxing analysts are doing. Vitali suffered a shoulder injury in the fourth round of the Chisora fight, making it near impossible to use his left hand as the fight progressed into the later rounds. Klitschko was still able to win a one sided decision over Chisora.
